3:1 And there was a man of the Farisees, Nychodeme bi name, a prince of the Jewis.
3:2 And he cam to Jhesu bi niyt, and seide to hym, Rabi, we witen, that thou art comun fro God maister; for no man may do these signes, that thou doist, but God be with hym.
3:3 Jhesus answerde, and seide to hym, Treuli, treuli, Y seie to thee, but a man be borun ayen, he may not se the kyngdom of God.
3:4 Nychodeme seide to hym, Hou may a man be borun, whanne he is eeld? whether he may entre ayen in to his modris wombe, and be borun ayen?
3:5 Jhesus answeride, Treuli, treuli, Y seie to thee, but a man be borun ayen of watir, and of the Hooli Goost, he may not entre in to the kyngdom of God.
3:6 `That that is borun of the fleisch, is fleisch; and `that that is borun of spirit, is spirit.
3:7 Wondre thou not, for Y seide to thee, It bihoueth you to be borun ayen.
3:8 The spirit brethith where he wole, and thou herist his vois, but thou wost not, fro whennus he cometh, ne whidir he goith; so is ech man that is borun of the spirit.
3:9 Nychodeme answeride, and seide to hym, Hou moun these thingis be don?
3:10 Jhesus answeride, and seide to hym, Thou art a maister in Israel, and knowist not these thingis?
3:11 Treuli, treuli, Y seie to thee, for we speken that that we witen, and we witnessen that that we han seyn, and ye taken not oure witnessyng.
3:12 If Y haue seid to you ertheli thingis, and ye bileuen not, hou if Y seie to you heueneli thingis, schulen ye bileue?
3:13 And no man stieth in to heuene, but he that cam doun fro heuene, mannys sone that is in heuene.
3:14 And as Moises areride a serpent in desert, so it bihoueth mannys sone to be reisid,
3:15 that ech man that bileueth in hym, perische not, but haue euerlastynge lijf.
3:16 For God louede so the world, that he yaf his `oon bigetun sone, that ech man that bileueth in him perische not, but haue euerlastynge lijf.
3:17 For God sente not his sone in to the world, that he iuge the world, but that the world be saued bi him.
3:18 He that bileueth in hym, is not demed; but he that bileueth not, is now demed, for he bileueth not in the name of the `oon bigetun sone of God.
3:19 And this is the dom, for liyt cam in to the world, and men loueden more derknessis than liyt; for her werkes weren yuele.
3:20 For ech man that doith yuele, hatith the liyt; and he cometh not to the liyt, that hise werkis be not repreued.
3:21 But he that doith treuthe, cometh to the liyt, that hise werkis be schewid, that thei ben don in God.
3:22 Aftir these thingis Jhesus cam, and hise disciplis, in to the loond of Judee, and there he dwellide with hem, and baptiside.
3:23 And Joon was baptisinge in Ennon, bisidis Salym, for many watris weren there; and thei camen, and weren baptisid.
3:24 And Joon was not yit sent in to prisoun.
3:25 Therfor a questioun was maad of Jonys disciplis with the Jewis, of the purificacioun.
3:26 And thei camen to Joon, and seiden `to hym, Maister, he that was with thee biyonde Jordan, to whom thou hast borun witnessyng, lo! he baptisith, and alle men comen to hym.
3:27 Joon answerde, and seide, A man may not take ony thing, but it be youun to hym fro heuene.
3:28 Ye you silf beren witnessyng to me, that Y seide, Y am not Crist, but that Y am sent bifore hym.
3:29 He that hath a wijf, is the hosebonde; but the freend of the spouse that stondith, and herith hym, ioieth with ioye, for the vois of the spouse. Therfor in this thing my ioye is fulfillid.
3:30 It bihoueth hym to wexe, but me to be maad lesse.
3:31 He that cam from aboue, is aboue alle; he that is of the erthe, spekith of the erthe; he that cometh from heuene, is aboue alle.
3:32 And he witnessith that thing that he hath seie, and herde, and no man takith his witnessing.
3:33 But he that takith his witnessyng, hath confermyd that God is sothefast.
3:34 But he whom God hath sent, spekith the wordis of God; for not to mesure God yyueth the spirit.
3:35 The fadir loueth the sone, and he hath youun alle thingis in his hoond.
3:36 He that bileueth in the sone, hath euerlastynge lijf; but he that is vnbileueful to the sone, schal not se euerlastynge lijf, but the wraththe of God dwellith on hym.
